Thank you. We are trying. Unfortunately because she went so long without proper hoof care, her feet will never be 100%. We are trying to trim them in a way where they will start to grow downwards again, instead of growing to the sides. It has had some effect. But we believe this is as good as it is going to get. Though we are going to keep up with her constant and frequent farrier work, and only time will tell! She deserves that and much more. My farrier believes even with her feet in the condition they are currently in, it will not lead to further lameness as long as we stay consistent with it. He told me she should have no issues going over small x-rails and trail riding for hours on end. Though I do not jump and would much prefer staying on the ground... lol
Usually with these types of tumors, they only effect one eye. When we first noticed the "fatty deposit", her other eye was fine. It wasnt until 3 weeks ago when I noticed she was developing a growth on her opposite eye as well. That is when I put a call into the vet and told him to schedule me an appointment to remove them both. It has taken me some time to raise the funds to have the surgery as I have 2 other horses to care for. She is how they say "breaking the bank". But I am doing everything I can for the horse and I just hope she's as much of a fighter as I am!
I am in tennessee. :) the cost of removal per eyelid is $150 x2 and the anesthesia is $150!
